European university opens campus in Germany
The European University Cyprus has opened a medical school campus in Germany and will receive its first students this autumn.
The launch of the new campus in Frankfurt was based on the increasing demand for EUC’s highly acclaimed medical programme and the growing need for skilled doctors. EUC School of Medicine, located on Im Vogelsgesang, will start operations in September.
EUC’s new campus will foster modern healthcare education, clinical care, research and innovation.
As part of Galileo Global Education, the largest higher education group in Europe, EUC has become a leading institution in medical education.
The Frankfurt Medical School Campus is a cornerstone of EUC’s and Galileo’s vision for strategic international expansion in higher education in the heart of Europe. EUC’s new campus serves as a significant milestone that will usher in a new era for higher education in Cyprus. Not only is the EUC Medical School Branch the first campus of a Cypriot university outside the region, but it is the first time that a small country, like Cyprus, is expanding into the economic stronghold of Europe.
Fully accredited through processes of the World Federation of Medical Education (WFME) by the Cyprus Agency of Quality Assurance and Accreditation in Higher Education (CYQAA) and approved by relevant authorities in Germany, the EUC branch will build on the existing strengths of the internationally recognised programme of the EUC School of Medicine – the only medical programme in the wider region that has been awarded 5 QS Stars by QS Top Universities.
Whether EUC medical students are learning in Nicosia or in metropolitan Frankfurt their immersive learning experience will be identical, along with access to EUC’s extensive international network for clinical or research Summer Externships in top institutions around the world. In addition to the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest minds in academia and take part in life-changing research, EUC Medical students at the Frankfurt Branch will be supported by EUC’s state-of the-art infrastructure and clinical simulation facilities and will have access to clinical training alongside experts practicing at cutting edge hospitals in the region.
